Do you want to rent a Bugatti Chiron?  Get ready for the ultimate sticker shock

One thing we don’t usually talk about when we talk about cars is how much it costs to own them. We talk about the purchase price and sometimes we are surprised by the stupid prices of the options, etc., but we hardly ever get to the bottom of the monthly costs.

The guy who runs the DragTimes YouTube channel, aka Brooks Weisblat, chose to do just that, but instead of doing it in a car for mere mortals, he ran the numbers in a one-year-old Bugatti. Chiron Sport. Those numbers, folks, are on the verge of panic.

Since the Chiron in question was one year old, the dealer who initially sold it offered a $ 200,000 discount. This may sound pretty cute, as it’s enough to get you a good down payment on a Los Angeles home, but it’s silly for a car that costs $ 3.5 million. Next, he wanted to trade in his almost new Ferrari F8 Tributo, which the dealership would offer him $ 10,000 above MSRP. Again, not bad, but it doesn’t mean much on a $ 350,000 car.

Well, Mr. Weisblat doesn’t want to buy the Chiron outright. Instead, you try to lease it (something Bugatti is shocking to offer, although according to this dealer it is), and that’s how you get the numbers for 24- and 36-month leases with a 2,500-mile-per-year allowance. It’s worth noting that about $ 4,000 of the monthly fee in taxes just before the actual amount of the lease is reached.

How much does it cost to rent a one year old Bugatti Chiron? $ 65,960 per month for 24 months. That cuts another $ 10,000 if you get a 36-month lease, but either way, it’s an incredible amount of money. By comparison, the median income for 2019 was $ 68,703. According to Experian, the median payment for a three-year lease in the US in 2019 was $ 450.

What you think? Could you justify spending the average annual household income in a month renting a 1,500 horsepower carbon fiber hypercar? Weisblat couldn’t, so he ordered a Ferrari SF90 Stradale instead.
